Murphy's Law At Work In Ohio

Friday, 6th November 2015

Friday Odd-Spot: Against the backdrop of sensational sales in the US this week, comes an 'Ooops' story from Ripley's Believe It Or Not. In a claiming race in Ohio on Wednesday, a stable allegedly presented a gelding, instead of the filly Ruby's Queen, for the day's final event. While it's bad enough that nobody, officials included, picked up on the error until long after the race was run and won, Murphy's Law ensured that Leathers Slappin, who had actually also raced on Monday, benefited from the extra outing and sailed home a $220 winner almost 8-lengths clear of his opposition. Investigations are ongoing.
